Chiron enters Aries on Monday and this is one of the most important transits of the year. Chiron will remain in Aries until 2027.
As well as wounds, Chiron in a birth chart can indicate musical and artistic gifts and talents, healing abilities including natural medicine and energy healing, a flair for Astrology and someone who has the ability to act as a teacher or guide for other people.
The lowest frequency of a Chiron wound would be to hurt others in the same way that we ourselves were hurt. We can work with it from a higher vibration and use it to help other people. One example of this would be a victim of child abuse who later goes on to train as a counsellor – she still lives with the pain but she uses her experience to give children the help that she never received.
Chiron’s energy is Shamanic. When I read charts, I’ve noticed that Shamanic people have a “strong” or heavily aspected Chiron, frequently placed in the 12th house which gives the person the natural ability to travel through different spiritual realms. These are usually people who have suffered through long periods of physical or mental illness and had difficult childhoods, but always felt in tune with the spirit world. Chiron people frequently feel alienated and shunned by society and are often diagnosed with disorders and end up on medication. The Shamanic view of some mental illness is that it can sometimes be an initiatory soul crisis which aids spiritual development and encourages the person to surrender to the healing path and answer the call. Finding the meaning and lessons in this crisis is to unlock the cure.
During Chiron’s transit through Pisces, we surrendered to our wounds and pain and we felt compassion and empathy for other wounded beings. There was a tendency to “wallow” over our problems and play the martyr or victim. Some issues were caused by loose boundaries and deception and we may have glossed over the flaws of others and worn rose tinted glasses in our relationships rather than facing the truth. Many people suffered at the hands of psychic vampires who used manipulation in order to tug at our heartstrings. We made excuses for the people who hurt us and contributed to our own unhappiness by giving them a place in our lives.
Chiron in Aries will bring opportunities to heal our identities and we’ll become pro active in our approach to healing ourselves. No longer content with wallowing and reliving the past, we declare war on pain and on our (no longer hidden) enemies.
Armed with the wisdom gleaned from Chiron’s journey through Pisces, we aggressively fight for the right to be our true selves and to break through the situations in our lives that cause us to feel disempowered. Many of us follow the same old routine – work a 9-5 job, watch TV, get married, have kids, buy a house – but is this who you really are, or are you only conforming to society’s expectations of you? What is your identity when all of this is stripped away? Are you working in an office every day, living in suburbia when the real you would rather sell everything and drive a camper van around the world?
Chiron in Aries gives us the opportunity to live authentically but first of all we may have to experience an identity crisis and work towards peeling away the layers of falseness that we’ve worn over the years. The transit is the next phase of our spiritual awakening and the things that used to be important to us, like job titles and celebrities, may no longer interest us as much. We may experience increased conflict during this transit but we recover quickly as we learn to take back power from those who stole it from us. Reaching another stage of initiation on the path to enlightenment, it’s time for us to master the element of fire and review how we express it in our lives.
As the earth switches gears to move towards a different frequency and dimension, we’ll see more clearly through the illusions of society around us and as a result of that, we’ll unapologetically upset the apple cart and set fire to the status quo. As we shake off the shackles of the control system that we were born into, we furiously fight for our independence and freedom and demand the right to be ourselves. During Chiron’s transit in Pisces, many of us became aware that we were being manipulated by the fake news of the mainstream media and it was difficult to identify fiction from fact. Armed with the truth, the energy of Chiron in Aries helps us to form a new, authentic world which begins with the self realisation of each individual.
